GCE NODE travels to Finland Thursday as part of a Norwegian delegation headed by Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

When attending the conference Northern Future Forum, Solberg has asked five Norwegian business leaders to join her: Anne-Grete Ellingsen (CEO of GCE NODE), Kjersti Kleven (Kleven Maritime), Morten A. Christophersen (Connect LNG), Dag Rune Olsen (University of Bergen) and Jørn Rattsø (NTNU).

Heads of state from the Nordic countries, the Baltics and Great Britain are attending Northern Future Forum.

– I will emphasize our cooperation between the industry and the University of Agder, which is a key factor for the success of NODE as a cluster, says Ellingsen.

This is the fourth edition of the UK-Nordic-Baltic summit. The previous were held in London (2011), Stockholm (2012) and Riga (2013).
